Women Being Driven by Their Image of Men

Because of Roe – one court decision – abortions were somehow now acceptable. Any obstacles that stood in a woman’s way of getting her education or starting her career were fair game for destruction – even her children. Because after all, a women should be just like a man in every way. She could go to school like a man, have sex like a man, go to work like a man, and not have to carry children like a man.

Yet in this drive to be just like men in every single way, someone forgot that women are uniquely designed to give birth to the human race. We are women for a reason. We are nurturing for a reason – it’s simply a matter of design. Several recent editorials have voiced the view that women ought to realize their right to be mothers and the need for them to be just that.

Abortions committed today will negatively affect our country and the world for generations to come.

This year’s marking of the 40th anniversary Roe v. Wade included, naturally, much regret over the growing death toll caused by the scourge of abortion. The number is now over 55 million. That’s 55 million abortions of children who never became Americans.

That number, however, doesn’t begin to do justice to the total loss. 40 years of Roe v. Wade now equates to the loss of multiple generations of Americans, thus producing an even worse multiplier effect, one that must be considered in counting up the casualties. Think about it:

A huge number of those 55 million would have gone on to have their own children. Those aborted in 1973, would be 40 years old this year. Some of them would even have grandchildren.

In fact, just imagine—a conservative estimate—if those 55 million abortions had all been born, and, in turn, had each produced, on average, just one or two or three or four descendants. If that had happened, there would be another 100 to 200 million Americans right now.

Washington D.C. 2013 March for Life to Protest 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

Thousands to March to Supreme Court on January 25

Washington, D.C. – On Friday, January 25 the March for Life Education and Defense Fund will host its annual Washington, D.C. event to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision on abortion.

Each year the March draws thousands of pro-life activists and supporters from around the country to rally at the National Mall and march to the steps of the Supreme Court.

More information at www.marchforlife.org.

While the marchers will mourn the loss of the event’s founder and longtime leader, Nellie Gray, the latest news such as a recent TIME Magazine cover story indicate that the pro-life position is winning at the state and local level. A majority of Americans now self-identify as pro-life—the ‘new normal’—and many of the thousands of supporters from around the country who will travel to Washington are young people.

“The March for Life is a demonstration of unity that we need
to continue the fight to win over
 the hearts and minds
of all Americans,” said Jeanne Monahan,
President of the March for 
Life Education and Defense Fund.
“We are energized by the increasingly pro-life youth who

are keenly aware that abortion is the human rights issue of today.”

WHO: Jeanne Monahan, President of the March for Life
Pro-life leaders
Elected officials
WHERE: National Mall – Washington, D.C.

WHEN: 12:00-1:30 P.M. Rally
followed immediately by March to Supreme Court

“This year‘s March will be a significant meeting place
where pro-life Members of Congress,
leaders, students and clergymen unite
to stand up for the unborn,” said Monahan.

Norma McCorvey of Roe v. Wade: “Don’t Vote for Obama, He Kills Babies”

Below is the script for the TV ad:

“I’m Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought ‘legal’ child killing to America.

“I was persuaded by feminist attorneys to lie; to say that I was raped, and needed an abortion. It was all a lie.

“Since then, over 50 million babies have been murdered. I will take this burden to my grave.

“Please, don’t follow in my mistakes. DO NOT vote for Obama. Obama murders babies.”

Peter Kreeft on what we know for sure about apples … and abortion!

I will try to prove the simple, common-sensical reasonableness of the pro-life case by a sort of Socratic logic. My conclusion is that Roe v. Wade must be overturned, and my fundamental reason for this is not only because of what abortion is but because we all know what abortion is.

This is obviously a controversial conclusion, and initially unacceptable to all pro-choicers. So, my starting point must be noncontroversial. It is this:

We know what an apple is. I will try to persuade you that if we know what an apple is, Roe v. Wade must be overthrown, and that if you want to defend Roe, you will probably want to deny that we know what an apple is.

Mother of 12 regrets her early support for abortion “rights”

Thirty-nine years ago nine black-robed men handed feminists a triumph that would try our souls, and — I have come to believe — find them wanting.

On Jan. 22, 1973, when the Sisterhood is Powerful crowd rejoiced at their Roe v. Wade victory, I was with them, a Washington, D.C., radical feminist scholar/abortion rights advocate, much in demand as a spokeswoman by virtue of my motherhood. After all, who better to illustrate the righteous need for abortion than a young woman with a future, already encumbered by a 3-year-old in daycare?

Five years later in San Francisco, on the morning of my own abortion, I felt proud of our feminist legacy — and even a little righteous, as though exercising my “right to choose” was a sacrament.
